EASIER INSTALL TC UCA OR LR UCA

Hi, so I've been reading the forums and looking into a 3" lift ( most likely the toytec ultimate lift), and im wondering for a normal daily driver with some casual offroading which UCA is easier to install. No worries on price, just wondering for ease of install which is better. TC UCA or LR UCA. Any input would be greatly appreciated.

They're probably both about the same to install. Both suck to install Any UCA sucks to install because you have to bend the pinch weld and pull the long ass bolt out.

right kinda figured that... I may just cut the bolt like someone else on here said. Although would the stainless steel uniball TC be easier to install than taking the B/j out of the stock UCA and reinstalling it in the LR UCA?

I swear I was just reading a thread about it... think I could find proof.. of course not... But since your from BC what do you think. LR or TC because we get decent amounts of snow here in northwestern ontario and im worried about salt being an issue with uniballs as previously stated... what do you think.

You're thinking of camburgs. They have both a uniball and a balljoint model. The balljoint one can be used with stock or aftermarket.
